Cancellation policy

Sometimes students need to cancel their course. Unfortunately, there are still costs to be paid and so we have to make a charge. Please see below for full details of these charges.

Cancelling before you course starts:

If you cancel your booking more than 14 days before the start of the course, the fees will be refunded. We will only keep the deposit of GBP100 to cover our administration costs.

If you cancel your booking less than 14 days before the start of the course, the fees will be refunded. However, a charge of GBP175 will be deducted together with the deposit of GBP100. This will cover our administration costs and a cancellation fee for the host family.

Cancelling after the course starts:

We recognise that sometimes students’ circumstances have to change and they may need to leave their course early. If this happens, we cannot refund your tuition fees unless you are cancelling due to circumstances beyond your control. Any refund is at the discretion of the school. Please note that the minimum we require is 2 weeks’ notice.

If  2 weeks’ notice is given…
All host family accommodation will be refunded but no tuition fees will be refunded.

If  notice is not given…
We will deduct 2 weeks’ host family accommodation from your refund and refund the rest of your host family accommodation fees but no tuition fees will be refunded

 

Exceptional circumstances

Sometimes students book for a very long period so it would not be fair for us not to refund some of their money. If you book a course for more than 6 months and have to leave early, we will refund as much of your money as possible.

If  you cancel and give notice…
6 weeks after your course starts – we will refund 50% of your tuition fees as well as your host family accommodation fees
7-12 weeks after your course starts - we will refund 25% of your tuition fees, as well as your host family accommodation fees
More than 12 weeks after your course starts - we will refund 0% of your tuition fees unless you still have more than 6 months left to study. If this is the case, we will refund 50% of your tuition fees as well as your host family accommodation fees

Please note: All refunds are at the discretion of the school. We will look at each case individually and make our decision based on the reasons for your cancellation.
